      The home team fans are at home, these games no longer matter, and it’s probably better for the team to lose than it is to win.  It must be December in Washington.  Welcome to week 15!

      There are two camps for Redskins fans at this time of year.  Those that want to tank and those that want to win.  If this describes you, I want you to know something important. You’re wrong.  You should probably feel bad about it too, but that’s your business.  The right way to go about this, is simply to embrace the doublethink.  
       
      Before and after the game it’s perfectly reasonable to acknowledge that losing has its advantages.  It does and it is undeniable.  Afterall we could be talking about the difference between Chase Young being in a Redskins uniform, or not.  What we need for that to happen is simple.  Redskins lose out.  Giants beat the Dolphins and Redskins.  Dolphins beat the Bengals.  All of these things are perfectly reasonable outcomes.  We’re that close to having an elite pass rusher.   
       
      Before that happens, we have a game to play.  It is in this moment that we should embrace the other side of our demented doublethink.  While the game is being played, especially against a division opponent, fans should want their team to do well.  Assuming they have a soul and any decency.  There is just no way that I can root for the Eagles to beat the Redskins during a game.  If you are the type of fan that does this, I hope you find someone that can fix what has broken inside of you.   
       
      Pregame Prediction:  Redskins 23 – Eagles 30  
      More interesting game we are missing because we are still watching the Redskins:  Packers – Bears  
      Things I am snacking on:  Brownie.   
      Number of colons used:  Six.  (so far)  
       
      Check back for updates.  I’m going to wander around the room for a while and stretch my legs to get away from a certain well-known ESPN Eagle fan’s boring conversations that my ear phones aren’t blocking out entirely.
       
      1st Quarter Redskins 7 - 3 Eagles
      "The Closer" Haskins showed up for work early today and hit his former college teammate for a touchdown.  He really took the life out of this crowd in *checks notes* Fedex Field.

what do yo all expect from the fourth string qb?

 

For the entire team to continue to make the same stupid mistakes they've made in Jay's tenure here, regardless of who's injured and who's healthy.

 

Clean. House.

Looks like Vikings will lose tonight.    Listening to Gruden's press conference- "We can compete against anybody in our division when healthy".  He is totally delusional right now.

 

Dawg... I lost it when I heard that. LOL.

If a stadium filled with Eagles fans doesn't wake Snyder the hell up about the displeasure that is growing among the Redskins faithful, nothing will.  How can he continue to be satisfied with this level of ineptitude, year after year?

 

who says he's satisfied?  It just so happens he's tried about every way to get a coach and every way to build a team in his time as owner

This was Denver today.  So it's not just us.  

Haven't followed the actual crowds in Denver this season, but ESPN has them listed at over 75K average. We barely have had 60K for our games.  

Again, not sure how many no-shows the Broncos have had.

 

If the Redskins were playing a nobody team today with nothing to play for, FedEx would look worse than Denver.

Things could not have gone better. Redskins embarrassed at home while a rival makes the playoffs by trashing them and because Kirk Cousins played like the Kirk cousins we all know. Watching him and his receivers throw fits on the sidelines was a thing of beauty.

Karma is a B*itch ain't it. Both Kurt and Bruce got their just rewards.

Well, since the seahawks and cowboys play against each other next week, you'll have to wait two weeks for seattle to lose. :)

So, I'm buying more rum?

Why is the left side of Pete Carrol's face completely yellow?

 

I think it's bad lighting in that stadium.

He certainly has done so much to correct an obviously sinking ship.  Bruce is probably safe.  Jay is probably safe.  We continue to make ridiculous personnel moves.
